I quite enjoyed this episode, I had to check the writer and director because it really had a Michael feel to it. The Indian chief was quite a good character and even though he could have taken the easy way out to get his Warbonnet back he decided the honorable way was the only way to go and by doing this freed Forest Tucker of his guilt.

This is an excellent episode. It does have a bit of a 'Michael' feel to it, possibly because in the later seasons Michael was also the shows main producer. I love that a real Indian was used instead of someone dressed as one. I wish we could have seen more of Chief Dan George. He looked so proud when he got his warbonnet back and rode away. :very happy
